Announcements:

After a 4 year Covid-induced hiatus MPRO IS BACK!!! We have resumed in-person meetings but there are some changes from prior years. We now meet at the Veterans Memorial Senior Center in Redwood City twice a month on Mondays at 7:00. And there has been a modest increase in the yearly dues.

Dust off those recorders and Join Us!

We have a number of instruments that have been donated to the Orchestra over the years, and are making them available for members to borrow during each season.
